Little Debbie produces a ton of popular products—Honey Buns, Nutty Bars, Zebra Cakes, Oatmeal Creme Pies, etc.
They are the textbook definition of ultra-processed snacks.
Perhaps the worst of all Little Debbie snacks are their mini donuts.
A six-donut package of Little Debbie Frosted Mini Donuts packs 430 calories, 25 grams of sugar and a staggering 15 grams of saturated fat (the recommended daily limit is 20 grams).
Eating too much saturated fat drastically increases your risk of high cholesterol, which in turn can have a negative impact on blood flow and oxygen transportation throughout the body—both important for athletes.
They're fine as an occasional treat, as is every product on this list, but if they're a daily staple of your diet, you're asking for trouble.
If you're craving something sweet, natural peanut butter is a stellar nutritional option.
